This Morning presenters raise concern over third outage in three days


This Morning presenters Holly Willoughby and Alison Hammond have raised concerns among viewers of ITV’s daytime show.

Concerns arose after Holly was seen crying into a handkerchief on the Today (March 8) show.

Her tears were so strong that co-host Phillip Schofield had to hastily cut a commercial break.

Why did This Morning presenter Holly cry today?

Holly found the discussion of Ukrainian refugees too much during a segment about the war on today’s show.

During the segment, Nicola Thorp and Julia Hartley-Brewer recounted how an 11-year-old Ukrainian refugee was forced to travel 600 miles, alone, to the Slovakian border.

“I don’t want to live in a world where it’s the best option for kids,” Nicola said.

The camera cut back to an emotional Holly, who was dabbing her eyes with a tissue.

Phil said “let’s leave it there” as Holly could be seen with tears streaming down her face.

He then said the show was going to pause as he turned to Holly, who was wiping her eyes.
